I am really new at all this. My IBS symptoms just started about 9 weeks ago, but have been excrusiating sense then. I am wondering about FI. I have heard a little about it here and there on this board and wondered if someone could tell me more. I cut my diet back quite a bit and that seemed to help but didn't make the pain totally go away. I started to notice that my pain was gas related. If I could get my gas to pass or even break up and move around the pain went away. I also have started to realize that I think carbs are causing the gas. So given that do you think I have FI or could it be a wheat intolerance or are those two things the same thing??Thanks for any help!! I want to cut out the right things, but not more then I have to. I am pg and need to eat as much as I can as I have already cut out a lot of foods from my diets. I don't seem to notice fruit and things bothering me. But I also hurt all the time all day long and so maybe that is why...Melissa

Wheat intolerance could be due to Celiac. FI is intolerance to veggies and fruits essentially. the thread lists the food and amount of fructose inthe food. You could get a breath test done to determine if you are FI.
Bonnie thanks a ton. I am going to print out that list!!!!
